The new tree

So here is some information on the new tree that will be merging with mine very soon. Darcy’s tree is a bit different from mine, which is nice since it allows me to research other types of ancestors that I’m not used to. She has a few ancestors that were in the Revolutionary War and […]

Wedding Bells
